These guys are subpar, you get a much better deal in Waikiki. Not very good at making you feel welcome either, maybe because I’m an old white guy?

Aloha Thaigirl13, Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. Our staff is trained to be professional and attentive. We apologize if they may have been a little more attentive helping guests that may have needed a little extra snorkeling assistance. We hope you were able to enjoy your snorkeling experience as the Captain Cook Monument is one of the best in the state known for its vibrant reef. Aloha and safe travels.

The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and the equipment provided was quite good. We got to see a Manta Ray up close which was also a highlight. Overall I thought it was average because it’s a lot of time invested for just okay snorkeling. The boat ride to and from the

Aloha, Thank you for taking the time to send us a review. Unfortunately it can be a bit of a drive from Waikoloa to Kona. We have been seeing a lot of humpback whales on the way to the bay so the crew may have taken a few more minutes hoping to spot one for your tour. We are excited you were able to see a manta ray! Those are not often seen on our day tours! Our morning tour may be a better option for more time on the water as it departs at 8:30am and returns at 1pm with two snorkel locations.
